My family does. I have kids still at home including a two year old who eats his weight in peanut butter on a weekly basis. To me, peanut butter is that stuff they put in Reeses Cups, Butterfingers and Nutter Butter Cookies. Oh, and a PB&J maybe two times a year. But I’ve never had the obsession with it that many people do. I have other obsessions thank you very much 😀 (cough cough Twinkies and Cheetos)
I have said that I will never make peanut butter cookies and I have stuck to that. They smell ick to me. But I still sometimes make treats with peanut butter for my husband and kids. And with Russ’s kids being here too, it seemed like a good time because I knew there would be no leftovers 😀
I am currently reading the King Arthur Whole Grain Cookbook (yes reading; not scanning; doesn’t everyone do that? 😛 ) and they have a recipe in there for peanut butter chocolate chip waffles. I saw that and knew it would perfect for both my family and the peanut butter loving blog community. This also takes it into the Elvis realm with a banana topping. Now THAT I liked. With a spoon. In my mouth. by itself. YUM! The recipe didn’t call for the following but to up the “OMG” level for everyone I made a chocolate/peanut butter sauce to put on top also.
If you like waffles, or like peanut butter or like chocolate or like bananas, you will like this 😀 As they cooked the whole kitchen smelled like a peanut butter factory lol. The original recipe calls for spelt flour so feel free to sub that if you want. This is a long list of ingredients but very quickly put together.
Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Waffles
With Banana Cream And
Peanut Butter/Fudge Topping
- For the waffles-
- 1 cup all purpose flour
- 1 1/2 tablespoons baking powder
- 3/4 teaspoon salt
- 1/2 cup crunchy peanut butter
- 1/4 cup sugar
- 4 tablespoons (1/2 stick) unsalted butter, melted
- 2 large eggs
- 1 cup milk
- 1/2 cup chocolate chips
- For the banana cream-
- 2 large bananas
- 1/4 cup sugar
- 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
- 1 teaspoon lemon juice
- 1 cup heavy cream
- For the Peanut Butter/Fudge Topping
- 1/4 cup peanut butter
- 1/2 cup hot fudge sauce
- Banana Cream- Mash the bananas in a small bowl with the sugar, cinnamon and lemon juice. In separate bowl, beat cream until stiff peaks form. Fold the banana mixture into into the heavy cream and refrigerate until the waffles are done.
- Waffles- Combine the flour, salt and baking powder in a small bowl. Set aside.
- Cream the peanut butter and sugar together until the peanut softens up. Pour in the melted butter.
- Add the eggs, one at a time and beat until well blended and mixture is smooth. Add the milk gradually. The mixture will be very soupy.
- Add the flour all at once and stir just until combined. Fold in the chocolate chips.Â Set aside to rest for at least ten minutes while you preheat your waffle iron and make the fudge sauce.
- Peanut Butter/Fudge Sauce-
- Mix the peanut butter and hot fudge sauce in a small bowl. Microwave for 30 seconds. Stir well. Microwave again until mixture is smooth.
- Pour about 1/3 to 1/2 cup waffle batter (depends on the size of your iron; mine took close to half a cup) in the waffle iron and cook waffles until are golden brown. Top with some of the banana cream and peanut butter fudge sauce. This will make about 5 waffles.
These sound yummy. I always read my cookbooks, cover to cover.
Same here. My husband thinks I’m strange lol
This is true, but if you keep making stuff like this I’ll deal with it LOL
You’d deal with it anyway… you LIKE my strangeness 😀
When I make these, I will just say waffles for breakfast -nobody needs to know all the indulgent details, it will be our tasty secret.
Works for me Tina 😀
I’ve never added peanut butter to my waffle or pancake batters, but I often slather it on top of them. Yummmm. I might need to try this soon, but I will be pouring waffle sauce all over it! We had waffles yesterday and I’m already craving them again.
Waffles are a very easy thing to crave regularly 😀
I’ll eat just about anything that includes bananas. This looks good.
Thanks Bel 🙂
I haven’t had time to read my cookbooks cover to cover yet but come September I intend to read the joy of cooking. So many little tips and tricks I am unaware of. I was never taught to cook so I just wing it. I think at 42 it’s time to learn some basics. Lol! I am not a fan of peanut butter either. Yet I love peanuts. I do like peanut butter fudge though.
Kim, Joy Of Cooking is an awesome one to read. I had an older edition when I was younger and I stupidly threw it out cause it was tattered (it was paperback). I regret that now because they have changed it so much.
My husband is the same way…he’s not a PB lover. Unless it’s PB&J with cold milk on the side. And only a few times a year. I do love PB, and these waffles look so very good to me!
Wendy, my kids would so love you as their mom then lol; cause I’m just a PB fan no matter how I try. 😛
Janet – this is where you and I would part…I LOVE peanutbuttter – with chocolate, bananas, whatever! This is right up my alley and definitely has the OMG factor! Buzzed!
[WORDPRESS HASHCASH] The poster sent us ‘0 which is not a hashcash value.
I love ya anyway Ann…. even with this huge flaw 😀
I think these sound awesome! I was all excited to try them, and then I read the title (minus the banana cream portion) to hubby, and he said yuck! Darn it, I was looking forward to breakfast tomorrow. Guess it will have to wait for a week day when it is just 6 year old and me!
You could always make them and freeze the extras and just make the hubby something else 😀
God I am obsessed with peanut butter, especially when combined with chocolate. But I also cannot resist an entire bag of crunchy cheetos.
Yum. Now at least one person in our house wouldn’t like the banana so I’d probably not make that myself.
Just make it w/out the banana cream 🙂
Beyond yum just decadent!
I agree. A definite decadent idea for dessert or breakfast 🙂
MMM sounds yummy. I am one of those people with a peanut butter addition. I love this recipe and can’t wait to try it!
Hope you like it Erin. My kids and husband sure did 🙂
I’m a reader not a scanner too! I always feel like I’ll miss something crucial if I just skim a cookbook over!
Heh. Nice to know I’m not the only one who does that
I so love peanut butter, especially when paired with chocolate, this sounds wonderful!
Thank you Cassie 🙂
I LOVE peanut butter. You wouldn’t have to ask me twice to try out these waffles. They look delicious. And the banana cream. Yes, please!
Emily, they go together quickly. Treat yourself! 🙂
Shut the front door- I want this ASAP. Banana cream on a waffle?? That sounds amazing!
